Kat and Aditya meet with a kiss

3

Katrina Kaif was spotted running through the gardens of Srinagar’s Nishat Bagh on Friday. The impassioned dash ended with a kiss from Aditya Roy Kapur on Sunday. The lead pair of Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor shared a passionate lip lock on a rickety bridge over the Dal Lake on Sunday as curious locals living in the adjacent houses looked on in amazement. The twosome play Noor and Firdaus, the desi versions of Charles Dickens’ star- crossed lovers Pip and Estella from Great Expectations.

Looking ethereal in white, the actress is met on the bridge by a lovelorn Aditya who kisses her after offering her the warmth of his shawl. The shoot was delayed for a few hours after unexpected snowfall on Sunday morning. It started around noon. As the temperature plummeted below zero degrees, Aditya was spotted with a kangri (coal stove) in between takes while Katrina was surrounded by heaters. The scenes were shot near the floating markets of the Dal Lake.

The unit had earlier shot in a house on its banks. The arrival of Katrina on Thursday had created a buzz among the locals and she has been provided three-tier security by CRPF and J&K police during her four-day stay. Nishat Bagh where she had shot earlier was closed to visitors but the Dal Lake shoot saw a large gathering. And apart from the police, locals too were hired for crowd control on Sunday.
